Development plan for the new Bauhaus Museum in Weimar presented
At a public meeting on 29 January 2013, the city of Weimar for the first time presented a development plan for the site of the new Bauhaus Museum. The plan envisages a change in street routes due to building over two sections of street and urban-planning adjustments to the surrounding area. Some 350 participants attended the meeting and voiced sometimes critical views on issues involving the planned traffic routing, the parking situation, the design of the area, expected costs, and the precise location and aesthetic appearance of the building.
The meeting formed part of the official planning procedure and ensures that the project is legally valid by providing public involvement at an early stage. The opinions expressed are being taken into account by the City of Weimar and will be considered jointly with the Klassik Stiftung Weimar and the architect.
